The Deep End – Wale (feat. Pusha T): Song of the Day 12/24

Between his own disappointment and the overall displeasure with his last album The Gifted, Wale knew he needed to return to his roots. He needed to return to lyricisim. And to do that Wale brought it Pusha T to jump off “The Deep End”.

Off his Seinfeld-inspired mixtape Festivus, “The Deep End” brings Wale back to the days before his signing with MMG. And while joining Rick Ross’ label has certainly had it’s advantages, “The Deep End” reminds listeners that old school Wale might just be the best Wale.

Lunch Money – Pusha T: Song of the Day 11/18

Outside of a handful of guest appearences, Pusha T has been pretty quite since releasing My Name Is My Name. That silent period ended in a big way as Push surprised us all as he dropped off his “Lunch Money”.

While his rhymes on “Lunch Money” continue his streak of impressive efforts, it is physically hard to make King Push’s lyrics the focal point of the track. That is because Kanye West put together polarizing production for “Lunch Money” which will have fans arguing over if it is groundbreaking or just simply crazy.

Numbers On The Boards – Ludacris: Song of the Day 10/23

While he recently hinted that his long awaited album is finally on the way, it is quite amazing how long Ludacris‘ project has been delayed. But with a slue of Ludaverses recently including today’s “Numbers On The Boards”, it might just be that time that Ludaversal sees the light of day.

Spitting a verse and only one verse over Pusha T’s single “Numbers On The Boards”, Ludacris is more reminding people that he is still around. Given that it has been over four years since Luda dropped an album, any new material even if it’s only the 16 bars on “Numbers On The Boards”, is a step in the right direction.

No Flex Zone (Remix) – Rae Sremmurd (feat. Nicki Minaj & Pusha T): Song of the Day 8/31

They hopped up on the scene with a Mike Will Made It beat and all of a sudden Rae Sremmurd‘s name was floating around the hip-hop world. After seemingly every rapper did their own take on their first big hit, it is finally Sremmurd’s turn to do the “No Flex Zone (Remix)”.

The time has finally come for Rae Sremmurd to retake their summer smash which has made them stars. With brand new verses from Nicki Minaj and Pusha T, the “No Flex Zone (Remix)” has certainly bolstered the original into something even Rae Sremmurd never expected.

Move That Dope – Future (feat. Pusha T & Pharrell): Song of the Day 3/25

He might be engaged to Ciara now but Future does not seem to be slowing his grind. He will not stop hustling, he won’t stop pursuing stardom, and he will continue to “Move That Dope”.

The latest single from his upcoming album Honest, “Move That Dope” continues Future’s trend of telling it like it is. Notable former drug dealer turned G.O.O.D. Music MC, Pusha T joins Future on the track who also brings in Pharrell for a verse unlike anything he offered up on G I R L.

Burial – Pusha T: Song of the Day 3/5

It doesn’t matter the production, Pusha T is never going to compromise his style. Whether it be one of his classic hard flows or an electronic track like today’s Song of the Day, “Burial”, Push is always going to be consistent.

Produced by Yogi who hales from London, “Burial” has more hip-hop features than many electronic tracks but even still Pusha T makes this track standout to rap listeners. Instead of conforming to the track, Push does he own thing on “Burial” and the beat seems to morph around him like only top notch rappers can.

Murda – Kid Ink (feat. Pusha T): Song of the Day 1/12

Kid Ink is on his way to the number one spot on the Billboard charts thanks to great features, heavy promotion and some sick beats. Two of My Own Lane‘s tracks have already been featured on Musical Breakdown but now Ink is back for a third time and he is ready for “Murda”.

While both of Ink’s collaborations with Chris Brown are made for the club, “Murda” is undoubtably Kid Ink’s street single from his second full-length. With Pusha T by his side, Kid Ink goes in over Sak Pase’s bold production and leaves nobody safe on his “Murda” spree.
